The main southern Island of Singapore are Kusu Island, St John’s Island, Twin Sisters’ Island and Lazarus Island.
St John Island
Home to mangroves, coastal plants and coral reefs, St John Island is just a 15 minutes cruise from the main island of Singapore. It is one of the country’s many beautiful offshore islands and linked to Lazarus via a small paved bridge.
Lazarus Island is Singapore’s best kept Secret which is still undeterred by heavy influx of tourists. The secluded beach provides pristine white sands, sprawling blue sea and the sun for people who are looking to be close to nature and get away from the bustling city. The island is complete with coral reefs, a thriving marine life, lofty hills and some endemic flora and fauna that gives this island its own distinct signature.
Kusu Island (Tortoise or Turtle Island)’s known for its temple, tortoise sanctuary, lagoons, pristine beaches and tranquil settings. The name Kusu means “Tortoise” or “Turtle” in Chinese; the island is also known as Peak Island or Pulau Tembakul in Malay. From two tiny outcrops on a reef, this island was enlarged and transformed into an island holiday resort of 85,000 square metres today.
